Close cover before striking! Jasper writes: “When an accident ruined the paint work on my Zvezda 1/35 scale BM-13 Katyusha, I decided to try modeling a burned-out vehicle. I replicated heavy rust using Vallejo acrylics and pigments as well as oil washes and filters. The groundwork is various types of tile grout with paintbrush bristles for the plants.
